Using antibiotics responsibly 

The aim of European Antibiotic Awareness Day is to emphasize the importance of taking antibiotics responsibly by putting an end to unnecessary use of antibiotics and encouraging people to follow their doctors’ instructions on how to take antibiotics in the appropriate way.

Responsible use of antibiotics can help stop resistant bacteria from developing and help keep antibiotics effective for the use of future generations.
